Award-winning children’s<br />

book author and<br />

illustrator Gavin Bishop<br />

tells New Zealand’s<br />

stories for children. He<br />

talks to reporter Emily<br />

Moorhouse about his<br />

lifelong passion for art, his<br />

first time seeing his books<br />

on sale and using his<br />

grandchildren’s ideas for<br />

new books<br />

GAVIN BISHOP knew he<br />

wanted to be an artist when he was<br />

four.<br />

Seventy-two years on, more<br />

than 70 published books and<br />

countless national awards later, he is<br />

continuing to do just that.<br />

Bishop was born in Invercargill,<br />

but moved to Christchurch to study<br />

at the Canterbury University School<br />

of Fine Arts and graduated with an<br />

honours degree in painting in 1976.<br />

He then became an art teacher<br />

at Te Aratai College, formerly<br />

Linwood College, before moving to<br />

Christ’s College, when another art<br />

teacher suggested he write a book<br />

for children.<br />

SUMNER’S RUGBY future<br />

continues to be in good<br />

hands.<br />

On page 14, we cover the<br />

colts’ latest victory – a 41-0<br />

hammering of Christchurch,<br />

which propels them into<br />

Saturday’s semi-finals.<br />

Having a good mix of older<br />

hands and hard nuts, and up<br />

and coming young players, is<br />

vital to a good sports team –<br />

or workplace for that matter.<br />

Sumner has a good supply<br />

of these ingredients, so the<br />

next few years continue to<br />

look positive.<br />

Meanwhile, a free family<br />

vaccination and market<br />

day hosted by non-profit<br />

organisation Pinoy CARES<br />

Canterbury is being held<br />

on Sunday at the Woolston<br />

Market, 43 Hargood St. The<br />

event runs from 9am-3pm.<br />

There will also be a lucky<br />

booster wheel with prizes<br />

available, and a barbecue.<br />

A SURVEY is revealing a strong<br />

sense of community in the<br />

Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong> and Port Levy<br />

areas.<br />

The purpose of the city<br />

council survey is to gain a better<br />

understanding of risk tolerance<br />

from the impacts of sea level rise.<br />

“An understanding of<br />

community risk tolerance<br />

can help the community,<br />

rūnanga and council make<br />

informed, community-specific<br />

decisions during phase three of<br />

the coastal hazards adaptation<br />

planning programme, ’ said head<br />

of planning and consents, John<br />

Higgins.<br />

Phase three is collaboration<br />

adaptation planning with<br />

communities. Those in the<br />

Lyttelton/Mt Herbert area will<br />

be first. It is estimated this phase<br />

wi l take at least 1.5 years to do<br />

properly.<br />

So far the survey, which wi l<br />

close on Friday, has had more<br />

than 100 responses.<br />

Coastal Pathway needs city council funding<br />

THE CITY council will need<br />

to dip into its pockets to pay for<br />

the final section of the Coastal<br />

Pathway.<br />

The Government gave the city<br />

council $15.8 million in Shovel<br />

Ready funding to build the<br />

missing section of the pathway<br />

between the eastern end of<br />

Redcliffs Village and Shag Rock.<br />

But the final cost is expected to<br />

be $17.3 million.<br />

City council<br />

general<br />

manager<br />

infrastructure,<br />

planning and<br />

regulatory<br />

services<br />

Jane Davis<br />

Jane Davis<br />

said funds<br />

were held in<br />

contingency<br />

for the project to cover any<br />

increased cost.<br />

Staff will seek approval next<br />

week from city councillors to<br />

draw down the funds.<br />

Said Davis: “The marine<br />

environment and the narrow<br />

road posed all sorts of unknown<br />

challenges, but the team now<br />

fully understands what’s<br />

required, how long it will take,<br />

and what it will cost.<br />

“Our focus has always been<br />

on delivering a quality, futureproof<br />

pathway while keeping the<br />

impact on the environment and<br />

the community to a minimum,<br />

and we always knew this section<br />

of pathway was going to be<br />

complicated,” Davis said.<br />

“However, we’ve faced some<br />

additional challenges, including<br />

Covid-19 related delays in obtaining<br />

construction materials,<br />

that have added to the costs of<br />

the project.<br />

“Fulton Hogan developed a<br />

different way of delivering the<br />

works that addressed many of<br />

the challenges associated with<br />

the marine environment and<br />

ground conditions.<br />

“Because this area of Moncks<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> is known as an early settlement<br />

area for both Māori and<br />

Europeans, the cost also includes<br />

archaeological and cultural<br />

monitoring of all excavation<br />

works, and monitoring of white<br />

flippered penguins that breed in<br />

the area.”<br />

Davis said amending some of<br />

the resource consents to accommodate<br />

these changes resulted in<br />

additional design and consenting<br />

costs, but has reduced the risks<br />

and provided greater certainty<br />

over the final cost.<br />

NEW RELEASES<br />

A Fish In the Swim of the World<br />

by local lyttelton author/poet Ben Brown<br />

Affecting and evocative, this classic memoir by one of Aotearoa’s finest Maori writers<br />

is now updated with new material.<br />

‘This is a book of memories. Some of them are my own. Some of them belong to<br />

others. They are as true and as fallible as any memories—distorted by time and<br />

distance and a writer’s choice of words…’ In the debut memoir that kickstarted a<br />

writing career that has spawned more than 20 books, including many award-winners,<br />

Ben Brown writes of a quintessentially New Zealand way of living that may not change<br />

the world or even ripple its waters, but is replete with meaning.<br />

Gathered from the tobacco-green valleys of the Motueka River where he grew up<br />

during the 1960s and 1970s, Brown’s memoir is rich with a sense of place, of family.<br />

Each story, each portrait, resonates with the dignity, warmth and understated humour<br />

of one of our finest poetic voices.<br />

Sevens Sisters<br />

How a People-First Culture turned silver into Gold<br />

by rikki swannell<br />

When Tyla Nathan-Wong popped over the conversion in what was the final act of the<br />

Rio Olympic gold medal match, her distraught face said it all. It was a look that was<br />

mirrored across the faces of the entire New Zealand team, slumped around the ground<br />

at the Deodoro Stadium as Australia celebrated their history making Olympic gold<br />

medal at the 2016 Games. It’s all well and good to have the best athletes, but if there<br />

was one thing everyone involved in the Black Ferns Rio Olympic campaign had learned<br />

it’s that what happens off the field can make or break what happens on it. A reset was<br />

needed and “people first” would be at the heart of that change. Led by new coach<br />

Allan Bunting and a large, diverse leadership group, the Black Ferns Sevens set course<br />

on what would turn out to be a five-year path to not only win gold at the Tokyo Olympics<br />

and be world dominant but to enhance the mana of the jersey and inspire people.<br />

The Widows of Champagne<br />

by renee ryan<br />

In this captivating story of resilience, three generations of women battle to save their<br />

family’s vineyard from the ravages of WWII. Champagne, 1939<br />

Gabrielle Leblanc Dupree is taking her family’s future into her hands. While she should be<br />

preparing for a lavish party to celebrate two centuries of champagne making, she secretly<br />

hides Chateau Fouché-Leblanc’s most precious vintages behind a fake wall in the cellar in<br />

preparation for the looming war. But when she joins the resistance, the coveted<br />

champagne isn’t the most dangerous secret her cellar must conceal…<br />

There’s even more at stake than Hélène dares admit. She has kept her heritage a<br />

secret…and no one is safe in Nazi-occupied France.<br />

Across years and continents, the Leblanc women will draw on their courage and wits,<br />

determined against all odds to preserve their lives, their freedom and their legacy…<br />

No Excuses: My Story<br />

The amazing true story of Dave “the Brown Buttabean” Letele and how he turned his<br />

life around. Dave Letele’s incredible life has taken him from footy to failure, crime to<br />

community, fat to fit and riches to rags -- and back again.<br />

Today, he is an award-winning community leader and life coach who, as the face of<br />

Buttabean Motivation, helps literally thousands of ordinary people achieve their goals.<br />

He provides targeted health and fitness programmes, helps young people find jobs,<br />

and runs a foodshare for those in need. But it wasn’t always like that. He has overcome<br />

poverty, obesity, intergenerational trauma, depression, the lure of a life of crime and<br />

his own demons. Like Dave says, “I’ve been at the bottom and I’ve been at the top,<br />

and everywhere in between … If I can do it, you can. No excuses.” This is his story.<br />

Eddy, Eddy<br />

by Kate de Goldi<br />

Eddy, Eddy is a coming of age story, a love story, an earthquake story and a story of<br />

finding your way back from grief. Eddy Smallbone (orphan) is grappling with identity,<br />

love, loss, and religion. It’s two years since he blew up his school life and the<br />

earthquakes felled his city. Home life is maddening. His pet-minding job is expanding in<br />

peculiar directions. And now the past and the future have come calling - in unexpected<br />

form. As Eddy navigates his way through the Christchurch suburbs to Christmas,<br />

juggling competing responsibilities and an increasingly noisy interior world, he moves<br />

closer and closer to an overdue personal reckoning. Eddy, Eddy is a richly layered novel,<br />

deftly written with humour and pathos: a love story, peopled with flawed and comical<br />

characters, both human and animal; and a story of grief, the way its punch may leave<br />

you floundering - and how others can help you find your way back.<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> area bus service well received<br />

COMMUNITY ACTION has<br />

led to the reinstatement of a<br />

public bus service from the bays<br />

area to Lyttelton.<br />

It started on Monday, just in<br />

time for the beginning of term 3,<br />

enabling students to travel into<br />

the city for school.<br />

It was well received with<br />

around 15 Cass <strong>Bay</strong> teenagers<br />

getting on board.<br />

Board member<br />

Reuben<br />

Davidson<br />

applauded the<br />

actions of three<br />

residents who<br />

had lobbied for<br />

the service.<br />

He said it was thanks to Cathy<br />

Lum-Webb, Luanna Swindells<br />

and Jenny Healey for working<br />

hard to make the new service<br />

happen for their community.<br />

“Their efforts, energy and<br />

determination are just what we<br />

need to ensure our port and bay<br />

communities are well supported<br />

into the future,” Davidson said.<br />

He said up until four years ago,<br />

the combined bays of Corsair,<br />

Cass, and Rāpaki had been<br />

serviced by a reliable public bus<br />

service. But then a reduction<br />

WELL PATRONISED: Students boarding the new bus service that will cater for the needs<br />

of bay residents.<br />

in public transport services<br />

left many students and others<br />

without a dependable mode of<br />

transport.<br />

Lum-Webb of Cass <strong>Bay</strong><br />

and Swindells of Rāpaki <strong>Bay</strong><br />

swung into action, petitioning<br />

the Ministry of Education<br />

and Environment Canterbury<br />

to reinstate bus services to<br />

these areas. They also put in<br />

submissions to city councillors,<br />

while Healey presented a further<br />

submission on behalf of the Cass<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> Residents Association.<br />

The new service leaves Rāpaki<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> at 7.15am, which is a good<br />

time for students as it gives<br />

‘This new service is good for<br />

the environment, good for<br />

high school students and<br />

might even let some parents<br />

have a sleep in.’<br />

– Reuben Davidson<br />

them sufficient time to catch a<br />

connecting number 28 bus from<br />

Lyttelton.<br />

Previously, they had to rely on<br />

either a 6.25am or 8.50am bus,<br />

with the first arriving too early<br />

for the start of school, and the<br />

second too late.<br />

“This new service is good for<br />

the environment, good for high<br />

school students and might even<br />

let some parents have a sleep in,”<br />

Davidson said.<br />

Fellow community board<br />

member Tyrone Fields said the<br />

new public transport option was<br />

welcomed in the face of climate<br />

change.<br />

“But for the Peninsula, it’s also<br />

about having that connection<br />

to the wider city now and into<br />

the future. And to cap it off we<br />

have some of the most visually<br />

stunning bus routes in the<br />

world,” Fields said.<br />

Lum-Webb, who is a<br />

community board candidate<br />

for the upcoming local body<br />

election, said she was grateful to<br />

ECan for listening to residents.<br />

Your Local MP for Banks Peninsula<br />

Tracey<br />

McLellan<br />

Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere is significant<br />

in our region for its contribution to<br />

biodiversity. Recently, Minister for<br />

Conservation Poto Williams and I visited<br />

to meet DOC staff and volunteers, and<br />

see a Jobs for Nature team in action<br />

restoring the wetlands. The Te Waihora<br />

Jobs for Nature programme is creating<br />

jobs for 31 people over a four year period<br />

and involves planting more than 250,000<br />

eco-sourced native plants and trees.<br />

It’s just one of the Jobs for Nature projects<br />

across the Banks Peninsula electorate.<br />

Planting in Avoca Valley, the restoration<br />

of Whakaraupō/Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>, and<br />

the pest and weed control work across<br />

the Port Hills and the Peninsula will<br />

make a real difference to the health of our<br />

environment and create jobs to boot.<br />

Speaking of health - I’m proud that<br />

this government stands for quality<br />

healthcare for all New Zealanders, no<br />

matter who you are or where you live.<br />

The health system we inherited was<br />

under serious pressure from years of<br />

underinvestment. It wasn’t working for<br />

patients or the health workforce. We<br />

had 20 disconnected health systems, so<br />

in response we’ve delivered Te Whatu<br />

Ora – Health New Zealand and Te Aka<br />

Whai Ora – the Māori Health Authority.<br />

It puts an end to the postcode lottery<br />

which meant that where you lived<br />

determined what care you got, and brings<br />

a focus on prevention rather than the<br />

ambulance at the bottom of the cliff.<br />

Creating ‘localities’ also ensures that local<br />

voices and specific local needs are at the<br />

forefront of health delivery. There’s still a<br />

lot more to do but this is a healthy step in<br />

the right direction.<br />

Earlier this month, I took a bunch of<br />

colleagues from the health and social<br />

well-being caucus committee to visit the<br />

Hōhepa campus on Barrington Street.<br />

Hōhepa is an amazing community that<br />

offers a range of services for disabled<br />

people, including residential services as<br />

well as day programmes. The goal is to<br />

support people to live independently.<br />

They’ve recently opened two new homes<br />

for 12 residents, and provide housing<br />

for 140 people across their Halswell,<br />

Barrington, and other locations.<br />

New-look Santa parade will be free for all<br />

THE SANTA parade is back<br />

with a new name, look and<br />

venue – and will be free for all.<br />

After a three-year hiatus due<br />

to the Covid-19 pandemic, The<br />

Christchurch Christmas Show<br />

Parade is ready to make its big<br />

comeback at 2pm on Sunday,<br />

December 18 at the Canterbury<br />

Showgrounds.<br />

The parade will take on a fresh<br />

new approach to the old Santa<br />

parade, with all the historic and<br />

beautiful floats being brought<br />

to life with singers, actors and<br />

dancers as they make their way<br />

round the roading system at the<br />

Canterbury Showgrounds. The<br />

floats will be laced together with<br />

bands, marching teams, community<br />

and cultural groups.<br />

The day will be a fun family<br />

event with entertainment, a<br />

Christmas market, food vendors,<br />

bouncy castles, amusements<br />

and two large picnic areas that<br />

families can enjoy, said parade<br />

director Jason Reekers.<br />

“We will have parking on<br />

site as well as public transport<br />

options. The Canterbury Showgrounds<br />

is a perfect venue for the<br />

parade. The roading system is<br />

safe and it means we don’t have<br />

to close any of the city’s roads<br />

and inconvenience any businesses<br />

or emergency traffic routes,”<br />

he said.<br />

The Christchurch Children’s<br />

Christmas Parade Trust is a notfor-profit<br />

charitable trust that<br />

is still looking for Christchurch<br />

businesses to get behind and<br />

support this new event with<br />

sponsorship.<br />

The trust has been given a<br />

$45,000 grant from the city<br />

council. It has also secured<br />

grants from charitable foundations,<br />

but needs to raise more<br />

funds.<br />

“The event is partially<br />

self-funded with money raised<br />

from parade naming rights and<br />

float sponsorship. This is a huge<br />

task and we really need local<br />

businesses to come out and support<br />

us so the trust can put on a<br />

great event for the community,’’<br />

Reekers said.<br />

“We are seeking a naming<br />

rights sponsor, as well as individual<br />

sponsors for our 22 spectacular<br />

floats.<br />

“In return for their sponsorship,<br />

sponsors will get a bit more<br />

this time than the traditional<br />

‘sign on a float’,” he said.<br />

“This is the first of what we<br />

hope will be many more years<br />

to come at the showgrounds, the<br />

parade’s new permanent home.”<br />

Forty-two volunteers braved<br />

the weather to plant more<br />

than 600 trees at the<br />

annual community planting<br />

day at Steadfast Reserve<br />

in Cass <strong>Bay</strong> on Sunday.<br />

This is the third year of<br />

riparian planting, as part<br />

of the Whaka Ora Healthy<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> project, to reduce<br />

sedimentation in Lyttelton<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong> and increase<br />

biodiversity in the Cass <strong>Bay</strong><br />

area. Among the volunteers<br />

were nine students from<br />

the United States, who<br />

have arrived to study at<br />

Canterbury University, and<br />

four Cashmere High School<br />

students.<br />

‘Writing books for our children with<br />

stories about us is really important’<br />

• From page 1<br />

“It was kind of weird because it<br />

was just out of the blue that this<br />

person said this and it struck a<br />

chord with me,” Bishop said.<br />

“I suddenly realised that was<br />

something I’d been thinking<br />

about doing for a really long<br />

time, but I had never got around<br />

to doing it.”<br />

English publishing company<br />

Oxford University Press (OUP)<br />

expressed it was looking for<br />

material that had a “strong<br />

New Zealand flavour” and had<br />

representatives visit Wellington<br />

at the time.<br />

Bishop liked the idea of this, as<br />

he hadn’t grown up reading New<br />

Zealand books.<br />

“When I was a child all of the<br />

books I read came from England,<br />

Australia, America mainly. It<br />

was a very exciting proposal.”<br />

So Bishop got in contact with<br />

OUP and made a start on his<br />

first book about a sheep, as sheep<br />

farming was a major industry in<br />

the 1980s. He called it Bidibidi.<br />

However, the book took a few<br />

years to publish as Bishop had to<br />

learn how to write and illustrate<br />

for children, something an OUP<br />

editor helped him with.<br />

The second book Bishop wrote<br />

he set in Linwood, where he was<br />

still teaching, and even used the<br />

old Edmonds baking powder<br />

factory on Ferry Rd as one of the<br />

major buildings in the book. He<br />

called it Mrs McGinty and the<br />

Bizarre Plant.<br />

Bishop said writing this book<br />

was “much more straightforward”<br />

as he began to get the<br />

hang of creating stories for children,<br />

and it was even published<br />

before Bidibidi.<br />

Bishop continued to teach<br />

art, while working on his books<br />

at the same time, often in the<br />

school holidays and at night after<br />

dinner.<br />

In 1998. he decided to pursue<br />

writing and illustrating books<br />

full-time. He remembers handing<br />

in his letter of resignation<br />

to the headmaster at Christ’s<br />

College.<br />

“He rung me up and said ‘are<br />

you sure you want to do this’ and<br />

I said ‘yup’ and he said ‘would<br />

you like me to tear the letter up’<br />

and I said ‘no, I’m really going to<br />

go ahead with this’.”<br />

That year Bishop wrote a book<br />

called The House that Jack Built,<br />

which looked at the impacts of<br />

colonialism on New Zealand.<br />

“It was very successful and<br />

in fact it’s being used still, in<br />

schools. That’s a book that’s been<br />

around for quite some time and<br />

looks as if it’s going to be still.”<br />

Bishop recalls the moment he<br />

knew he wanted to be an artist at<br />

the age of four when a signwriter<br />

came to a small town called<br />

Kingston, south of Queenstown,<br />

where he was living at the time.<br />

The signwriter came to paint<br />

some signs outside the Kingston<br />

DREAM JOB: Gavin Bishop knew he wanted to be an artist when he was four-years-old.<br />

PHOTO: KAREN CASEY<br />

pub – which has since burnt<br />

down – and while he was there,<br />

he was asked to paint a big mural<br />

on the wall above the bar.<br />

Bishop hadn’t seen a real<br />

painting before and was allowed<br />

to go and watch the signwriter at<br />

work.<br />

“I used to stand watching him<br />

paint this big scene of the lake<br />

up on the wall and I found that<br />

absolutely magical,” he said.<br />

“That’s when I think I thought,<br />

that’s what I want to do.”<br />

Because Bishop was taller than<br />

most kids his age, lots of adults<br />

would tell him he should become<br />

a policeman.<br />

“That’s all you had to be, you<br />

didn’t have to be fit or smart or<br />

clever or anything like that, you<br />

just had to be tall and I would<br />

say ‘I don’t want to be a policeman,<br />

I want to be an artist’.”<br />

Bishop remembers the first<br />

time he saw his book on sale at<br />

the old Whitcoulls on Cashel St,<br />

which was demolished after the<br />

earthquakes.<br />

“I can remember walking<br />

through there and seeing my<br />

first book for sale and they had<br />

a mountain of it, they had like<br />

a hundred or more copies all<br />

stacked up and stacked on the<br />

floor I think.”<br />

He can’t remember if it was<br />

Bidibidi or Mrs McGinty and the<br />

Bizarre Plant, but he asked the<br />

shop assistant if they wanted him<br />

to sign the books.<br />

“I sat down and spent ages<br />

signing these books, and what<br />

was wonderful was they all sold<br />

quite quickly and they had to get<br />

some more in,” he said.<br />

Bishop works from his studio<br />

at his Cashmere home with<br />

his wife Vivien, who he met at<br />

art school. She was also an art<br />

teacher, for Avonside Girls’ High<br />

School.<br />

When asked what she thought<br />

about his achievements he<br />

laughed and said he didn’t know.<br />

“We don’t talk about it much,<br />

it’s just part of our lives.<br />

“Sometimes I’ll grab her to<br />

look at my work and get her to<br />

tell me what she thinks is wrong<br />

with it,” he said.<br />

FAMILY: Gavin Bishop with<br />

his daughter Alexandra and<br />

his book Chicken Licken<br />

in 1984. PHOTO: CCL<br />

Bishop and Vivien have three<br />

daughters and three grandchildren,<br />

who have all grown up<br />

reading his books.<br />

On a couple of occasions<br />

his grandchildren have made<br />

suggestions for books they would<br />

like to read, which Bishop has<br />

carried out.<br />

When his grandson George<br />

was four he asked Bishop why<br />

he hadn’t written a story about a<br />

digger.<br />

“He said ‘well I think you<br />

should write a book about a<br />

digger because I’d like to read it’<br />

and I thought ‘oh okay’,” Bishop<br />

said.<br />

Soon after Bruiser was published,<br />

a book about an angry<br />

digger that becomes caring and<br />

sensitive towards the end of<br />

the story.<br />

Bishop said when he first started<br />

authoring children’s books he<br />

was keen to write his own stories<br />

about things he wanted to write<br />

about.<br />

He has stories based off his<br />

Māori whakapapa and has rewritten<br />

old fairy tales. However,<br />

in recent years, he has been<br />

commissioned to write books by<br />

his publishers, which he said has<br />

been a new challenge.<br />

His latest book is called E Hoa,<br />

with te reo Māori and English<br />

versions available. It is part of a<br />

series for very young children,<br />

which will be released on<br />

Wednesday.<br />

The book aims at showing children<br />

how to talk about feelings<br />

through a friendship between a<br />

child and their dog.<br />

Bishop tends to work on one<br />

book at a time, preferring to finish<br />

one concept before moving<br />

onto the next.<br />

He said his work can become<br />

quite consuming and often has<br />

a hard time switching off from<br />

thinking about his books.<br />

“I’m always working on it, it’s<br />

hard to let it go.”<br />

Of the 70-plus books Bishop<br />

has created, several have been<br />

translated into different languages,<br />

mostly to other European<br />

languages, but recently he has<br />

had some translated into Asian<br />

languages.<br />

Bruiser has been translated<br />

and sold in China, Taiwan<br />

and Korea and another book<br />

called Teddy One Eye, which is<br />

a disguised biography about his<br />

life seen through the eyes of his<br />

teddy bear, has been translated<br />

and sold in China.<br />

“I don’t hear from anyone in<br />

China who has read it but the<br />

fact that it’s been reprinted a<br />

couple of times means that it’s<br />

obviously selling well enough,”<br />

he said.<br />

Bishop believes a country is<br />

made up partly by its literature<br />

and arts, something he thinks<br />

New Zealanders tend to forget<br />

– instead, getting carried away<br />

with devotion to sport.<br />

“I think in a hundred years<br />

time people will still know who<br />

Kiri Te Kanawa is and who Janet<br />

Frame was and who Joy Cowley<br />

was. They’ll still know those<br />

people because their work will<br />

still be speaking to the people in<br />

the future.”<br />

When asked if he thought he<br />

would ever have more than 70<br />

books published he admitted<br />

he just started and “sort of kept<br />

going.”<br />

It never occurred to him how<br />

successful he would be, although<br />

it was “nice to be recognised”<br />

through various awards he said.<br />

He has recently been named<br />

a finalist in the Publishers Association<br />

of New Zealand <strong>2022</strong><br />

awards for best children’s book,<br />

which will be announced in September.<br />

He has previously won<br />

two PANZ awards for the best<br />

use of illustration in a children’s<br />

book in 2000 and 2009.<br />

When asked if retirement was<br />

approaching at the ripe old age<br />

of 76, he laughed and said he<br />

wouldn’t know what to do with<br />

himself if he stopped creating<br />

books.<br />

“At the moment I’m managing<br />

to produce work that’s okay and<br />

I’ll keep going while I’m doing<br />

that. I mean it keeps me alive, it’s<br />

challenging and it’s interesting<br />

and I get to meet interesting<br />

people,” he said.<br />

“Writing books for our<br />

children with stories about us is<br />

really important.”

10 <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News Wednesday <strong>July</strong> <strong>27</strong> <strong>2022</strong><br />

Linwood College to Te Aratai College<br />

<strong>2022</strong> has been a momentous year for our kura. At the start of Term 2<br />

we returned to Aldwins Rd, our original school site of 68 years, and into<br />

our completely rebuilt school and our new name, Te Aratai College.<br />

ADVERTISEMENT<br />

We were off-site for just under three years<br />

at the former Avonside GHS site, itself a<br />

physically beautiful environment. Therefore,<br />

we did not have to live in the middle of a major<br />

building site with what would have been the<br />

shifting temporary classrooms, the dust, mud<br />

and noise. It also meant that a year came off<br />

the building timeline.<br />

Sustainable development along Ōtākaro.<br />

We have responded to the clear community<br />

voice for our rebuild, community consultation<br />

which we deliberately gathered by gathered<br />

by visiting local markets, supermarkets and<br />

in our ongoing dialogue with whānau. Te<br />

Aratai College has purpose-built general and<br />

specialist facilities for classroom learning,<br />

sports, and cultural pursuits. Our kura has both<br />

the best of existing teaching practices, and<br />

the positive practices that arise through the<br />

personalisation of learning. We remain rigorous<br />

about the difference between a positive change<br />

for student success and what is a fad.<br />

Festival of Nations held at Ōtākaro site.<br />

Our architects, Architectus, also designed<br />

Tūranga, the central library, so our rebuilt<br />

school is of the same exceptional quality.<br />

Likewise, Southbase, our construction<br />

company, and RDT, our project managers, are<br />

very experienced in significant projects which<br />

centre on the moral imperative.<br />

Of course, it is true that buildings alone do<br />

not necessarily improve education. The<br />

relationship with the teacher - he tāngata, he<br />

tāngata, he tāngata - and the personalisation<br />

of learning are the two key factors for this,<br />

but there is also no doubt that new, purposebuilt<br />

buildings and spaces that arise from<br />

community values and priorities can contribute<br />

hugely to these two factors.<br />

Students learning in library of<br />

Te Whare Matauranga.<br />

Te Aratai College believes in a strengthsbased,<br />

pathwayed curriculum starting with<br />

each student’s strengths. Therefore, education<br />

at our school is about seeing the whole person<br />

– classroom learning, sport, music, drama<br />

– and how these developmentally positive<br />

experiences enrich students’ understanding<br />

and nurture students’ focus by contextualising<br />

their learning. In this way learning is<br />

meaningful to the individual and strengthsbased.<br />

PM visits for Te Aratai opening<br />

Students learn best when who they are in<br />

terms of language, culture and identity is<br />

affirmed. Enhancing the mana and dignity<br />

of the individual is at the heart of Te Aratai<br />

College. We are pleased that our community<br />

is valuing our school’s direction resulting in<br />

significant roll-growth, over 60% in the last few<br />

years. This has meant that Stage 2 of building<br />

programme is beginning immediately to be<br />

completed for the start of the 2024 school year<br />

for a roll of 1200 students. Stage 3 follows:<br />

1800 students, the size of the school in the<br />

1980s.<br />

Our school’s Year 7-13 curriculum centred<br />

in our Te Aratai College campus creates<br />

aspiration and community. We are very<br />

fortunate to be home at Aldwins Rd.<br />

NEWS 11<br />

Recognising the fallen: One man’s mission<br />

• By Chris Barclay<br />

TERRY MCLAUGHLIN began<br />

quietly walking every row of<br />

Sydenham Cemetery before last<br />

Christmas, on a mission.<br />

His end goal was apparent<br />

last week when the retired nurse<br />

hammered a cross into the<br />

unmarked grave of a Gallipoli<br />

veteran who was affected by<br />

killing long before World War 1.<br />

McLaughlin recently<br />

completed researching 16,000<br />

plots on the city council database<br />

to find fallen soldiers like<br />

Private Patrick Fahey 6/894 1st<br />

Battalion Canterbury Infantry<br />

Regiment.<br />

McLaughlin traced Fahey, who<br />

was wounded in Turkey and then<br />

again on the Western Front, to<br />

Block B Section 11 Plot 28 – and<br />

then gradually pieced together<br />

the 41-year-old’s grim life story.<br />

Fahey’s war service was typical<br />

of young New Zealanders who<br />

enlisted after war broke out in<br />

1914 – after basic training he was<br />

shipped to the Middle East before<br />

landing at Anzac Cove on April<br />

25, 1915.<br />

He was shot in the hand 13<br />

days later during the second<br />

Battle of Krithia and after<br />

convalescing in Malta and<br />

England, Fahey rejoined his<br />

unit in <strong>July</strong>, 1916 to hold a<br />

“quiet” sector of the frontline at<br />

Armentieres.<br />

Two months later the<br />

Canterbury regiment was<br />

redeployed to the Somme, where<br />

a shrapnel wound to Fahey’s right<br />

forearm resulted in a return to<br />

England and medical discharge<br />

in January, 1917.<br />

He died in Christchurch<br />

Hospital on October 28, 1926,<br />

three days after he was found<br />

in a Kilmore St boarding house<br />

intoxicated and unconscious with<br />

a fractured skull. The coroner<br />

returned an open verdict.<br />

McLaughlin also discovered<br />

Fahey’s early life was linked<br />

to a tragic demise – his Irish<br />

immigrant alcoholic father<br />

shot his mother dead before<br />

turning the gun on himself after<br />

a domestic dispute in Chertsey,<br />

south-west of Christchurch, on<br />

January 18, 1889.<br />

“Mary Fahey had hidden at a<br />

neighbour’s house but she was<br />

found by Francis, who dragged<br />

her outside,” McLaughlin said.<br />

“A constable ordered Fahey to<br />

release his wife but he shot her<br />

twice in the head, and again in<br />

the abdomen as she fell to the<br />

ground. He immediately put the<br />

gun to his own head and fired<br />

but the round only grazed his<br />

scalp. He fired again, this time<br />

successfully.”<br />

Patrick Fahey, his elder brother<br />

Francis Jnr and the youngest boy<br />

William John were sent to an<br />

LONG CAMPAIGN: Terry<br />

McLaughlin researched<br />

every plot at Sydenham<br />

Cemetery to unearth<br />

unrecognised resting places<br />

of war veterans, including<br />

that of Private Patrick Fahey<br />

(above).<br />

orphanage in Nelson.<br />

McLaughlin found no record<br />

of William John Fahey after he<br />

was enrolled; Francis Jnr never<br />

married and died in Awapuni<br />

Hospital, near Palmerston North,<br />

in 1953, aged 74.<br />

Intrigued by the story,<br />

McLaughlin felt there would<br />

only be a satisfactory ending<br />

“once he (Patrick Fahey) has got a<br />

headstone”.<br />

NEWS<br />

• From page 11<br />

Fittingly, this memorial is<br />

scheduled to be unveiled on<br />

Remembrance Day, November<br />

11, due to the New Zealand<br />

Remembrance Army, a charity<br />

dedicated to restoring war graves.<br />

McLaughlin joined as a<br />

volunteer and has identified the<br />

resting places of 436 veterans in<br />

the Sydenham Cemetery.<br />

From that number, 43 are<br />

unmarked, including four other<br />

Great War survivors, whose<br />

service will also be recognised by<br />

granite headstones with a ceramic<br />

poppy attached.<br />

Fahey will be acknowledged,<br />

figuratively, alongside Sapper<br />

Ernest Perry, Private William<br />

Hudson Wingham and Sergeant<br />

George Withers.<br />

Sergeant Alan Grimshaw, a<br />

member of Jayforce who also<br />

served in the Royal New Zealand<br />

Army Medical Corps during the<br />

Malayan Emergency, belatedly<br />

benefits from McLaughlin’s tireless<br />

fact-finding as well. He died,<br />

aged 80, in 1999.<br />

Eventually, the Remembrance<br />

Army wants to restore up<br />

to 15,000 service graves in<br />

Christchurch and Canterbury<br />

so the dead are appreciated for<br />

generations to come.<br />

A dozen more headstones have<br />

already been earmarked for Sydenham,<br />

while 200 poppies are<br />

destined for Linwood Cemetery.<br />

Remembrance Army chief<br />

executive Simon Strombom said<br />

while all service graves in Wellington<br />

and Taranaki had been<br />

restored, there was still work to<br />

do in Canterbury.<br />

WAR MEMORIAL: Terry McLaughlin places a makeshift cross on the unmarked grave of<br />

Gallipoli veteran Private Patrick Fahey in Sydenham Cemetery until a granite headstone is<br />

installed in November.<br />

PHOTO: CHRIS BARCLAY<br />

“It’s going to take three or<br />

four years, we’re going to make<br />

a substantial investment in Canterbury,”<br />

he said,<br />

McLaughlin’s connection<br />

to the Remembrance Army<br />

stemmed from growing up near<br />

the Avro Woodford factory –<br />

home of the RAF’s famed WW2<br />

vintage Lancaster bomber.<br />

“I’ve always had an interest in<br />

military history. I grew up with it<br />

(in Cheshire) with it all around,”<br />

the 69-year-old said.<br />

“I was brought up about half<br />

a mile from the Avro factory. I<br />

reckon I’ve seen every Avro Vulcan<br />

ever made fly over my house<br />

at 150 feet, coming into land.”<br />

McLaughlin, who moved to<br />

New Zealand in 1986, went to a<br />

Remembrance Army working<br />

bee last year, where it was<br />

suggested Sydenham Cemetery<br />

was his ideal location to explore<br />

because he lived nearby.<br />

“I thought; ‘That’s alright then,<br />

I’ve always liked cemeteries’.<br />

Then I went to the city council<br />

website and found there’s nearly<br />

16,000 burials there. I thought:<br />

‘I’m retired and have plenty of<br />

spare time’.<br />

“I did one pass through the<br />

cemetery, it took a few days obviously,<br />

and then I took a photo of<br />

every headstone that could have<br />

possibly belonged to a service<br />

veteran,” he said, explaining<br />

he excluded people born before<br />

1860 or after the 1930s.<br />

“Once I’d eliminated the<br />

photos of headstones of people<br />

who didn’t have a service history<br />

I started going through the cemetery<br />

ledgers. I’ve audited every<br />

burial there.<br />

“There’s some amazing stories<br />

and the fact the Remembrance<br />

Army is uncovering and<br />

recording them for posterity is<br />

what matters.”<br />

HOME GROUND ADVANTAGE: The two-time defending<br />

champion Sumner Colts team celebrate another victory at St<br />

Leonards Square as the semi-finals beckon.<br />

• By Fin Ocheduszko Brown<br />

SUMNER IS closing on a third<br />

successive Christchurch Metro<br />

colts rugby title after coasting<br />

into the play-offs as top qualifier.<br />

Unbeaten at their St Leonards<br />

Square home ground for three<br />

seasons, Sumner host High<br />

School Old Boys on Saturday<br />

while Shirley and Marist Albion<br />

are also vying for a place in the<br />

decider.<br />

Sumner finished the regular<br />

season with a perfect seven-win<br />

record in conference A and then<br />

thrashed Christchurch 41-0<br />

in their preliminary final last<br />

Saturday.<br />

The competition’s premier colts<br />

squad are the only unbeaten side<br />

in the 16-team competition and<br />

head into the semi-finals with a<br />

positive points differential of 344,<br />

and the stingiest defence.<br />

HSOB finished third in conference<br />

A with five wins a draw and<br />

a loss – ominously a 45-18 defeat<br />

to Sumner on June 11.<br />

Sumner’s all-round qualities<br />

were again on display against<br />

Christchurch, albeit after a<br />

sluggish start last Saturday as<br />

they racked up seven tries while<br />

keeping their line intact.<br />

Coach Ben Gorst said the side<br />

“got into their groove” after 15<br />

minutes, prop Jack Jones 16th try<br />

another one-sided contest.<br />

Jones then turned provider for<br />

halfback Jack Rule before first<br />

crossed out wide to give Sumner<br />

a 15-point advantage at the<br />

break.<br />

Hooker Connor Newton added<br />

a brace in the second spell and<br />

also set up fullback Jack Forrest<br />

for the penultimate five-pointer<br />

with a slick offload.<br />

Impact loose forward Manson<br />

Samuelu’s completed the<br />

try-scoring off the bench via a<br />

his third and final conversion.<br />

Sumner captain Henry Ullrich<br />

was rapt with the performance<br />

given they had to prepare indoors<br />

at Mt Pleasant School due<br />

to inclement weather.<br />

“We couldn’t do our training<br />

how we wanted to,” he said,<br />

although restricted contact training<br />

was not an issue.<br />

Ullrich said a highlight of the<br />

performance was keeping the<br />

opposition scoreless.<br />

“I had trust in the boys, but I<br />

didn’t realise it was going to be<br />

that much of a blowout,” he said.<br />

Treasures of the past:<br />

Dog town connections<br />

IT SEEMS Lyttelton has always<br />

been a town that welcomes<br />

our four-legged friends. Our<br />

first image from the museum’s<br />

collection features a brawny dog<br />

on Ōtamahua Quail Island, prior<br />

to Robert Falcon Scott’s ill-fated<br />

1910-13 Terra Nova Expedition<br />

that was based in Christchurch.<br />

Scott had chosen the city<br />

for its magnetic observatory<br />

and excellent Lyttelton port<br />

facilities, and also possibly the<br />

family connection (his cousin<br />

R.J. Scott was then a professor<br />

of engineering at Canterbury<br />

University).<br />

Explorers like Scott and Shackleton<br />

also used the Ōtamahua<br />

Quail Island quarantine facility<br />

as a quarantine and training<br />

location for the dogs and ponies<br />

they took to Antarctica.<br />

For the Terra Nova Expedition,<br />

Scott had asked the Irish-born<br />

adventurer Cecil Meares to lead<br />

the dog sledge teams, along with<br />

the experienced Russian dog<br />

handlers Anton Omelchenko<br />

and Dmitry Girev. In November<br />

1910, at Lyttelton, they loaded<br />

34 dogs, along with 19 Siberian<br />

ponies and three motorised<br />

sledges, aboard the Terra Nova<br />

to take on coal and then on<br />

to Antarctica. The dogs were<br />

mostly Siberian huskies and were<br />

essential on those early Antarctic<br />

expeditions for sledge pulling.<br />

On arrival in McMurdo Sound<br />

they set up the first base at Cape<br />

Evans on Ross Island, putting<br />

up a prefabricated structure<br />

now known as Scott’s Hut. This<br />

base served as an important<br />

shelter for the Terra Nova teams<br />

and their animals, as well as<br />

for members of Shackleton’s<br />

1915-17 Ross Sea party who were<br />

marooned there for 18 months.<br />

Dug out from the ice in 1956 by<br />

a US expedition, the hut remains<br />

remarkably well preserved to this<br />

day.<br />

While the ponies on Scott’s<br />

expedition did not fare well in<br />

the fierce polar conditions, and<br />

the motorised sledges even less<br />

so, it was the dog teams that<br />

came through and performed<br />

beyond Scott’s expectations.<br />

Some of the men built very close<br />

relationships with individual<br />

dogs – Scott’s favourite was<br />

named Osman, which famously<br />

saved a sledge and team of 10<br />

263 x 180<br />

before sailing for Port Chalmers<br />

harnessed dogs from sliding into<br />

a crevasse.<br />

While Scott and four more<br />

of his team failed to survive<br />

the return journey from the<br />

South Pole, Osman returned to<br />

Lyttelton with the Terra Nova<br />

in 1913 and lived happily with<br />

Dmitry Girev in Christchurch<br />

for the next three years. After<br />

Girev returned to Russia in<br />

1916, Osman was sent to the<br />

Wellington Zoo with newspapers<br />

of the day heralding the arrival<br />

of “Osman the Great”. There,<br />

in the company of a pack of<br />

Get the most out of your tank of fuel<br />

EVEN AMIDST a relentless tidal<br />

surge of sport utility vehicles, I’m<br />

pleased to report there is still room<br />

in our market for the traditional<br />

small hatchback.<br />

What’s more, you don’t have to<br />

pay a lot of money for it, Suzuki<br />

has been doing it well for as long as<br />

I can remember with the Swift, and<br />

Toyota’s Yaris and Honda’s Jazz are<br />

all still around.<br />

The latter have slowly crept up<br />

in price over the years and now<br />

the company accountants for<br />

those brands must be looking at<br />

sharpening their pencils for there’s<br />

a new benchmark for buyers who<br />

are wanting into that part of the<br />

market.<br />

Enter the MG3, a 1.5-litre fivedoor<br />

that epitomises everything<br />

small hatchbacks represent. It lands<br />

here in base-model form at $19,490<br />

as tested. It is labelled Core, if you<br />

spend an extra $2k, that will buy<br />

you into the Excite. What’s more,<br />

these prices are driveaway, on road<br />

costs are included, there’s also the<br />

inclusion of a seven-year warranty,<br />

roadside assistance and warrant of<br />

fitness checks.<br />

To me that is great value, and it’s<br />

easy to see why MG is making a<br />

mark in Christchurch, there are a<br />

lot of them around and the range is<br />

quite vast along with a wide variety<br />

of colours. The evaluation car was<br />

SQUAT: The MG3 imparts a sporty look.<br />

painted a vivid red and it received<br />

favourable comment.<br />

MG is a company that needs little<br />

introduction; sure, it has lost most<br />

of its old English heritage, but the<br />

Shanghai Automotive Industry<br />

Corporation, the Chinese company<br />

that now owns the brand, has been<br />

loyal to MG’s past, the product is<br />

well built and exciting, which I<br />

guess is why the name Excite is part<br />

of the MG3’s image.<br />

The MG3 is short at just under<br />

4m, but it has a cheeky look and its<br />

squat rear end promotes a sporty<br />

appearance.<br />

It is also well equipped for its<br />

price. Major items include central<br />

display screen, digitally controlled<br />

air conditioning, cruise control,<br />

electric windows all round, electric<br />

mirror adjustment and trip<br />

computer. For safety there’s a host<br />

of kit including stability control,<br />

corner brake control, emergency<br />

brake assist, reversing camera, no<br />

fewer than six air bags and ISOFIX<br />

child seat mounts.<br />

That’s not a bad package for a<br />

car around $20k and one which<br />

will win favour amongst those who<br />

want a small hatchback but have a<br />

limited budget.<br />

The fabric-trimmed Core<br />

specification model would be the<br />

one I want, the Excite will give you<br />

quasi leather, bigger wheels and a<br />

few other goodies, but I like base<br />

MG3 CORE: At $19,490 it is a bargain price for a new car.<br />

specification models and the Core<br />

really wants for little.<br />

Under the bonnet sits a 1498cc,<br />

four-cylinder petrol engine. There<br />

are no surprises here but for the<br />

fact it is quiet and well-engineered<br />

for performance and fuel thrift.<br />

MG claims power outputs of<br />

82kW and 150Nm. They are<br />

realised a little towards the top end<br />

at 6000rpm and 4500rpm, but that<br />

means it is a happy engine that<br />

will work freely through the rev<br />

band, and given the total weight of<br />

the car is still well under 1-tonne<br />

then the strength of the engine<br />

low down isn’t significant. The<br />

MG3 will accelerate to 100km/h<br />

in 11.5sec, and if you are held up<br />

by a slower car on the highway, it<br />

will complete an overtake in 8.2sec<br />

(80-120km/h).<br />

More important, is the fuel usage<br />

equation, MG claims a combined<br />

cycle average of 6.7-litres per<br />

100km. During a week in my care<br />

the MG3 returned some thrifty fuel<br />

usage figures such as a 7.8l/100km<br />

combined cycle average along with<br />

a 5.1l/100km figure sitting at a<br />

100km/h cruise.<br />

Drive is transferred to the front<br />

wheels through a four-speed<br />

automatic transmission. It’s fair to<br />

say that even with just four gears<br />

it is a sweet shifting gearbox and<br />

the ratios are well structured to<br />

extract maximum energy from the<br />

• Price – MG3 Core, $19,490<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4055mm; width, 1729mm;<br />

height, 1504mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

front-wheeldrive,<br />

1498cc, 82kW,<br />

150Nm, four-speed<br />

automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 11.5sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 6.7l/100km<br />

engine. Top gear moderates engine<br />

speed quite nicely, the engine ticks<br />

over freely but not too quickly at<br />

open road speed, the rev counter<br />

pointing to 2500rpm at 100km/h.<br />

It must be said, too, the MG3<br />

travels at open road speed quietly.<br />

There are few wind gushes, and<br />

sound off the 15in tyres is kept<br />

to a minimum – soundproofing<br />

throughout the vehicle is in<br />

abundance.<br />

One of the advantages of high<br />

profile tyres is the associated<br />

ride quality and that is spread<br />

throughout the interior. Even<br />

though the rear suspension is a<br />

simplistic tube/torsion beam<br />

type, there is smooth absorption,<br />

bumps and lumps are arrested well<br />

even though the rear spring and<br />

damper rates are a little on the firm<br />

side.<br />

I took the evaluation car on my<br />

normal highway run west towards<br />

the alps. It covers ground without<br />

fuss, a strong nor’wester was<br />

blowing as I headed towards inland<br />

and was buffeting the side of the<br />

car but it felt stable and tight on the<br />

road, corrections to the steering<br />

were only marginal.<br />

There are a couple of inland<br />

corners I really like, so I pointed<br />

the MG3 at them quite quickly<br />

and the first impressions of<br />

turn-in are that of accuracy and<br />

composure.<br />

Driving the wee MG3 is relaxing<br />

and somewhat rewarding, I was<br />

somewhat reluctant to take it back<br />

to the dealership, as a driver you<br />

very quickly become one with<br />

the car. If you take into account<br />

the original outlay you get good<br />

value motoring and transport<br />

which won’t tax the wallet at fill-up<br />

time, and if you are worried about<br />

ballooning fuel prices, the MG3<br />

performs happily on 91 octane.<br />

An acquaintance of mine is an<br />

MG aficionado, there are several<br />

in his driveway amidst a raft of<br />

other English classics. For as<br />

long as I have known him he has<br />

driven nothing else other than<br />

English cars – up until now, I<br />

see an MG3 has pride of place in<br />

the driveway, that must be some<br />

recommendation for the modern<br />

age of MG.<br />

What’s happening in Banks Peninsula<br />

It’s a privilege to serve as your MP for Banks Peninsula, representing communities from Akaroa to<br />

Cashmere, Sumner to Halswell, and all parts in between. And one of the biggest privileges is getting out<br />

and about and seeing what is going on out there – innovative enterprises, strong communities, ecological<br />

restoration, and people having fun!<br />

Restoring Te Waihora<br />

Minister for Conservation Poto Williams and I met DOC staff and volunteers and<br />

saw a Jobs for Nature team in action restoring the wetlands. The Te Waihora<br />

Jobs for Nature programme is expected to create jobs for 31 people and involves<br />

planting thousands of eco-sourced native plants and trees<br />

It’s just one of the Jobs for Nature projects across the Banks Peninsula electorate.<br />

Planting in Avoca Valley, the restoration of Whakaraupō/Lyttelton <strong>Harbour</strong>, and<br />

the pest and weed control work across the Port Hills and the Peninsula will make<br />

a real difference to the health of our environment and create jobs to boot.<br />

Reducing on-farm emissions<br />

The Prime Minister, Rino Tirikatene MP and I also slipped on some Redbands<br />

to visit the Ravensdown EcoPonds to learn more about how they are reducing<br />

greenhouse gas emissions on farms, utilising state-of-the-art technology to<br />

remove virtually all the methane emitted from effluent ponds. Very interesting<br />

and impressive work – Kiwi ingenuity on display!<br />

Te Aratai College opening<br />

It was amazing to officially open the amazing new Te Aratai College with the Prime<br />

Minister, who gave a hopeful and heartfelt speech to some very enthusiastic<br />

students and passionate staff. The facilities are fabulous and will no doubt provide<br />

a nurturing environment for the many students who will pass through the brand<br />

new doors.<br />

Congratulations to everyone involved and thank you to Principal Dick<br />

Edmundson, Board Chair Finlay Laird and Foundation Chair Linda Rutland for<br />

their vision and hard work. We were honoured to offer a beautiful pounamu for<br />

what will be the annual Norman Kirk Manākitanga Award.<br />

Investing in the trades<br />

I briefly fancied myself as a skilled tradesperson while having a good look around<br />

Ara’s Woolston Trades Campus! Budget <strong>2022</strong> funded another apprenticeship<br />

boost which is good news given the demand for skilled tradespeople is high – it is<br />

a great way to become your own boss or create a business that employs<br />

other tradespeople.

Helping out with flower power<br />

The Halswell Community Hub is brightening up with crochet and knitted flowers,<br />

bringing a splash of coloured to mid-winter school holidays!<br />

The very clever Trudy from the craft group at Halswell Community Hub has made<br />

the first contribution to the tree - Megan Woods MP and I seamlessly added a<br />

poppy each, and Keri and Kate say come on over to add your knitted/crochet<br />

flowers too.<br />

Matariki at Takapūneke<br />

Matariki was special this year, as we marked it with a public<br />

holiday for the first time.<br />

I was able to plant a tree for Pou tū te Raki o Te Maiharanui at the hugely<br />

significant Takapūneke Reserve, hosted by Ōnuku Rūnanga. It’s a place of great<br />

and tragic importance for Ngāi Tahu but also as part of the story of the Treaty of<br />

Waitangi, for all New Zealanders. It’s not only an important story of the past but<br />

sets an excellent example for today. Many thanks to Carmel Sepuloni MP and<br />

Rino Tirakatene MP for being here for such a special day<br />

Tackling the big issues:<br />

taking action on the cost of living and health<br />

This government is getting on and tackling some of the big issues<br />

facing New Zealand. We know it isn’t easy but it is<br />

important work.<br />

I know that the cost of living is a major issue facing families.<br />

There’s no easy fix but we’re taking action to address this challenge.<br />

We introduced a cost of living package as part of Budget <strong>2022</strong>, so<br />

that 2.1 million people received a payment to help with rising prices. Now we<br />

have extended the fuel tax cut, road user charge reduction, and half price<br />

public transport to January <strong>2022</strong> as well as making half price public transport<br />

permanent for Community Service Card holders.<br />

In April we increased support for families, pensioners and students, and<br />

recently our Winter Energy Payment has restarted which gives one million people<br />

more money to help pay their heating bill.<br />

We are tackling the supermarket sector to make sure<br />

New Zealanders get a fair price at the checkout. To do this supermarkets<br />

will open up wholesale access to competitors at a fair price. By opening up<br />

supermarkets’ stockrooms, it will be easier for new competitors to enter the<br />

grocery market, and ensure fairer prices. We’ve already passed a new law to<br />

clamp down on anti-competitive covenants – I was on the Select Committee that<br />

considered this legislation and it’s already making supermarkets change<br />

their behaviour.<br />

There’s more to do, but these changes make a difference for families.<br />

I’m proud that this government stands for quality healthcare<br />

for all New Zealanders, no matter who you are or where you live.<br />

The health system we inherited was under serious pressure from years<br />

of underinvestment. It wasn’t working for patients or the health workforce.<br />

We had 20 disconnected health systems, so in response we’ve delivered<br />

Te Whatu Ora – Health New Zealand and Te Aka Whai Ora – the Māori Health<br />

Authority.<br />

It puts an end to the postcode lottery which meant that where you lived<br />

determined what care you got, and brings a focus on prevention rather than<br />

the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff. Creating ‘localities’ also ensures that<br />

local voices and specific local needs are at the forefront of health delivery.<br />

There’s still a lot more to do but this is a healthy step in the right direction.<br />

We’re getting on with it.
